Cane and Able

Story Sent in by Howard:

I took Deborah out to dinner and then we went to a candy shop. They had a few dozen varieties of candy canes for sale. I offered to buy her one and she picked one with green and yellow stripes. We left the shop and walked along with our candy canes.

She ate about half of it when she made a grossed-out face and said, "This candy cane sucks."

We weren't far from the shop and I told her, "That's strange. You ate half of it. But you want another one?" They were cheap enough and I was trying to be nice.

She laughed and said, "It figures I'd be on a date with a guy who buys me bad-tasting candy canes. Why'd you let me get that one?"

I said, "You picked it out. How was I supposed to know what flavor it was?"

She said, "Typical guy. Have a nice life," and then she powered ahead and away from me.

  1. Typical female: make a poor decision and then blame your date for 'forcing' you to make it.

    1. Right?! Except, it isn't limited just to dates - it can be any male in the vicinity...

  2. She was just looking for an excuse to ditch you. That being said, blaming you for making her pick "bad-tasting candy canes" seems like a really desperate move to get away. Were you making innuendo jokes before this conversation? About how you have a candy cane she can suck on?

  4. Personally, I find it endearing when a girl picks the wrong candy cane, eats half, then blames me for her dissatisfaction. I would have totally given her a chance.
